If your FI’s mom contacted your Mom because she wanted to do something, I would ask your Mom to contact FI’s Mom and explain that aunt has dropped the ball. Your Mom could offer to host wth FI’s mom on behalf of your sister, the Maid/Matron of Honor.

They could plan a luncheon/shower for when the Out of Town sister is in town for the wedding, or they could plan it earlier and she would likely be unable to attend.

I can completely understand your disappointment, that is a serious drag (and I don’t think you were being bratty, this is a legit downer!). I agree that perhaps your mom and Future Mother-In-Law could do something small together for you, since your Future Mother-In-Law was already willing. It’s nobody’s fault but your aunt’s that she promised a wonderful day and didn’t deliver. I think your Future Mother-In-Law will understand that. I can understand the embarrassment of your aunt being rude to your Future Mother-In-Law, try not to think about it. Your Future Mother-In-Law is an adult and can handle a little rudeness, you’ve got other things to stress about. The only thing you can do is apologize on your aunt’s behalf and move on. Whatever happens, I really hope it all works out. I would be bummed too!

Your aunt sucks. Explain to your mom how much this means to you and how you would truly appreciate even a small get together at someone’s home. I’m sure her and your Future Mother-In-Law could team up and plan something nice. Hope it all works out!!

I don’t think you are being a brat at all.  I am looking forward to my shower too.  Its our day!!  Shame on your aunt.  I hope your Mom takes the lead and makes it happen for you.  (I personally wouldn’t even invite the aunt!  LOL ok, I probably would, but wouldn’t like it) Good luck.

@soontobeMrsBoo:  Glad it worked out! You are totally not a brat. You had every right to get excited about a shower and it sucks that your aunt messed it up. Hope you have a great time and enjoy it!
